Venus III

lightweight extraordinaire!

> Pitch Venus III

without stakes, then

decide the best location

and move it. Cleaning

is easily accomplished

just by lifting the tent

overhead and shaken




> Adjustable vent

windows above the

entrances provide

constant air circulation,

even with the doors

closed. Vents are

supported by small pole

repair sections.





> Use the canopy by

itself for stargazing

on mild nights. Simply

slide the poles through

the canopy‘s elastic

loops and into the

seating pockets.



a > An incredibly simple tent to pitch: insert 3 poles into color

coded, continuous sleeves; seat into new adjustable, tensioning

pockets; and stake the corners and guy lines. Done in just about

2 minutes!

b > Storm proof: Venus III is virtually freestanding, so just a few

stakes are needed. When weather turns nasty, there are ample

loops and pre-mounted guy lines (stored in ingenious Cord

Stuffsacks). Double guy line loops grip the pole sleeves to

prevent the fly from flapping.

c > Easy handling all the time: Zippers have color coded, reflective,

and glow-in-the-dark pulls, and are easily operated with one


d > One inner door is oversized to permit side by side seating for

two. One vestibule has a loft for wet gear.

> For a lighter weight

shelter, pitch the outer

fly without its inner

canopy as an ultra light

shelter, wind protection

during breaks, or as

a large space for bike


> Sensible layout: Two

large vestibules offer

personal storage spaces

and are accessed easily,

even while laying in

a sleeping bag. One

vestibule is extra large,

and one door is oversized

for comfortable, side by

side seating.
